I’ve been riding/racing the same frame (Pinarello Razha K) for 5 years now and think its time to upgrade the frameset. I do a lot of Crit racing in the Northeast and think the Specialized Allez Sprint is an easy choice given its popularity and affordability.
I have been riding rim brakes the whole time and thought it would be easiest to swap all of the upgraded parts onto the new frameset. I’ve been watching the Specialized website as I know they sold through them earlier this year probably to those doing the same thing so I was planning on either waiting for them to become available again in the Fall after the “road season” (if it comes back) or when the 2021 models arrive.
As of today, I noticed they no longer show them on the site so curious similar to what they’ve done with their Tarmac and Venge models if they’re planning on going all-in Disc? I would think a frame so affordable and popularity among many crit racers that they would keep it available for both rim and disc.
Sent an inquiry to Specialized and waiting to hear back but curious if anyone has heard anything more about it
